the person is. there is no positive i.d. we expect more details at a briefing from law enforcement in an hour and will bring that live. we've learned the identity of the third victim killed in the attack, lindsay liu. the school confirmed her identity earlier this afternoon. 8-year-old martin richard and 29-year-old krystle campbell were also killed in the horrible bombings. 178 people were injured and at least 100 have been released from area hospitals. i'm joined by john king and cnn analyst. juliet, start with you. you are a former homeland security official. what are you hearing on the latest of the developments especially when it comes to this individual who was spotted on videotape? >> essentially what you said, you know, that the idea they would have a name that soon seemed way too quick for someone in custody unless he was well known to law enforcement already or was under surveillance. right now this is exactly how you would expect an investigation to unfold. there will now be -- trying to figure out what his name is but, jake, the key is what are they going to say at 5:00? we should
on the books, now laws in our country. i think that's what we are going to have to do. we are going to have to find people, across the aisle, who we can work w. in order to pass legislation in this area of gun violence that will make a difference in the lives of millions of americans. >> mr. lynch. >> sure. i want to point out that we serve in the legislature with 435 members. you can't break for lunch without getting 218 votes. so whenever you hear a legislator saying i solve the cargo security issue, i'm responsible for port security even though i voted against t. i'm the one who is responsible for nuclear safety, i'm the one who did the assault weapons ban, look, the truth of the matter is ed has been on the side of big business. on ast at that -- 1/2 25 -- nafta on fishing rights, i'm with the fishermen, you're with the fish. on the banking issues, i'm with the taxpayers, and the people of america, you're with the big banks and the bailout. on all these issues on the telecommunications, you're with the telecommunications companies. >> that's quite a laundry list. let him respond. >> tha
. ratified by the senate or the law of the land. and it sounds to me like one of the punchlines of your account, even though washington powers did grow, he did have a republican understanding, which required him to be very attentive to the commitments that were made by the nation. in the 1770s, we were not in position to make international commitments, but we did it with didn't have a lot of statutes on the book, but we have resolutions. would you not say when it washingtons experiences the commander-in-chief has a constitutional obligation to take seriously the commitment the nation has made in conventions like the geneva convention. .. >> i think it's important for the commander-in-chief to be looking at commitments that we make. >> others? more questions? speeches? opinions about canada? [laughter] >> [inaudible]. >> the former dean wants to make a speech about her youth. [laughter] >> i spent many summers canoeing in canada and singing every morning oh, candidate, which is beautiful. for that reason i made a point in junior high school of studying the history of canada, and why i ha
, take a law enforcement official briefed on this investigation has said that a suspect was identified from cameras here on boylston street on the 700 block at the lore don taylor store. surveillance cameras from lore don taylor. -- lore don taylor. -- lord&taylor. this is a huge development in this case. this is a tragedy that's impacted people here in boston and all the way to the bay area. to clarify, i called the boston police department about 20 minutes ago and was told that there has not been an arrest, but then that police department also referred me to the boston f.b.i. when i spoke to them also about 20 minutes ago, they said they could neither confirm that there had been an arrest but they also would not deny that there had been one. they told me they would brief the media later today. still folks here paying their respects are cautiously optimistic. >> i think it would put a lot of people's minds at ease that the person has been caught. i think it's an unsettling feeling when you know someone is still out there. >> reporter: we are expecting an update from the f.b.i. at 5:00
quickly walk away from it, what is not normal. that we only have so many law enforcement people. we have a guy in times where the waterway and there may be a normal explanation for it. i get on the metra system and by putting my earphones and a listen to my music or whatever when that is probably not a very smart thing, particularly for a guy like me to do. but it is just being aware -- you know, it is so easy. when i went to vietnam ever went said, stay alert, stay alive. i think people will be a little bit more alert right now, but just look for things that are out of place. is an author.t is ned zsa,ler republican. 'd think throrism comes at all different forms and different faces, not just literally, but metaphorically, too. you cannot say that it is not political or that it is. it is hard to label active terrorism -- acts of terrorism sometimes providing it is up to with identifying terrorism. we sometimes let our guard down and i feel like we do not know when the time is to act. when something should be under suspicion. we wait for something to happen. tough one. is a you are
a suspicious substance in it, we are told, wolf, by a law enforcement source that there are similarities to the letter sent to senator wicker. what exactly does that mean i've asked my sources, so far, wolf, inconclusive at this point. we do know there were some marks, i guess you could say identifying marks in the wicker letter, a postmark from memphis, tennessee. there was no return sender. we don't know if that nor the message included in the letter to senator wicker if that bears the similarity, but we are being told that there are similarities. so it certainly makes you wonder if it could have been sent from the same person or if they think -- if authorities think it is. we're certainly digging on that at this point. you can see in the lower corner of the screen, we're waiting the white house screening. it was scheduled for 11:45 a.m. it's not that unusual for it to run a little later than what it is now. so we do know of course the white house press secretary jay carney will be receiving a lot of questions about these developments. but at this point it's also very much an issue, wo
locomotives. about half a billion dollars to be spent on these new locomotives. in that section of law, one sentence was added that said these must be 100% american made. no one was making locomotives in america before that. but siemens, the german corporation, one of the biggest manufacturers in the world said, oh, half a billion dollar well, can make locomotives in america, sure. in sacramento, california, they opened a manufacturing plant, probably somewhere between 200 and 300 people working there today manufacturing 100% american made locomotives and on may 134, three years after they began this process, the first 100% american made locomotive in probably more than a century rolled onto the tracks of america. we can do this. h.r. 549 will provide that opportunity, using american-taxpayer money. i have another bill that does the same for wind and solar projects. we can do these things and put our mind to it and get past this business of austerity. we cannot solve this problem of american jobs with an austerity budget. we see it failing here in europe and united states as the long-term u
? >> we're told fran townsend has a federal source, i have a boston law enforcement source saying an arrest has been made. that is a dramatic breakthrough. waiting for more information. i was told earlier this morning an operation was under way after they had clearly identified a suspect. the breakthrough came, remember, just last night, we were talking about how much progress they made in the how and exactly when. but they hadn't gotten to the who. i'm told based on a video camera at lord & taylor department store a few blocks from here, based on a video camera from that store fixed on the location from the second bombing, across the street from the second bombing, they got what they were looking for. video analysis showing a male showing up and placing the black bag with the explosive device in it, and because of the video enhancement technology, mostly dprept sto from the department store, they clearly identified a suspect, a single suspect and an arrest has been made. a briefing scheduled for later this evening, obviously. >> so let's reset chronologically. do we know what poi
-- there are laws that say you cannot set up shop there unless you can prove your self-sufficient economically or you're not going to take a job from a french person. host: let's look a little bit more at "the hill" to find out what we know about the suspects in the boston bombing attacks. the bombing was allegedly carried out by chechens who immigrated to the united states. for a little bit of news, the latest on the suspect in the boston bombings, cnn reports that the surviving suspect has told investigators that his older brother, not any international terrorist group, asked her mind of the deadly cnn is attributing that to a government source. pulmonary interviews with dzhokhar tsarnaev indicate that the two brothers had the classification of self- radicalized jihadists. has conveyed -- dzhokhar tsarnaev has conveyed to investigators that his brother's motivation was jihaa jihadist p. here is the "washington post" -- the two brothers suspected of bombing the boston marathon appeared to be motivated by their religious faith, but do not appear to be connected to any terrorist group. we are a
, and it does appear according to nbc news sources in law enforcement, that there is some video of somebody placing a black bag or a dark bag at the site near the site of the explosions. we should caution that there may have been a lot of people placing bags on the ground, as they come to watch runners pass the finish line. that may not have been the bomb at all. but if you are an investigator trying to get to the bottom of this, that's someone opportunity to talk to. and what law enforcement sources are telling us is that there are a lot of people now that they want to talk to based on all of this evidence. but with everybody, world media here, law enforcement agencies from around the country, really lacking at this, there are a lot of -- there's a lot of information that's flying around and a lot o opportunipportuniti to conclusions. that appears to be what happened. nonetheless, they've made some tremendous strides. we can see that based on what we're looking at on the ground since the attacks on monday afternoon. guys? >> a great rundown, scott, of what we know and don't know at this po
does law enforcement approach this scenario? what do you think the next few hours will look like? >> i think it will be a deliberative and careful process. as you say, they are closing in on the suspect and that is tightening. one of the concerns is does this individual have explosives attached to his body, has he taken someone hostage. is that wired explosively and we've seen that in other plots as the net tightened that the individuals decided to use explosives. >> we have boston p.d. on this, there's fbi, there's atf and massachusetts guardsmen. who is in the lead here? >> the lead will be the joint terrorism task force which is led by the fbi. so in a sense, they're organizing all of the constituent agencies and giving direction. i wonder, someone mentioned the events in the last three hour, this all was an attempted robbery. an m.i.t. rob shot and killed, grenades thrown from a vehicle. report of the dead suspect having an ied on his person. characterize, scale from one to ten, level of danger as they get closer to this remaining suspect? >> i would say it's about a level eight. b
suspects either being identified or being in custody is because these photos began circulating among law enforcement and there was confusion about whether or not there had been arrest but about the fact that there have been suspects or persons of interest who have been identified or at least isolated by law enforcement. >> bill: so you have seen the photos, rick, and based on the imknowledges you saw, how clear are the faces on these photos? >> they are pretty clear. there are multiple angles and you can definitely see their faces. and i hope and i believe that law enforcement using those photos can positively identify the men and whether or not they're the men who are actually responsible remains to be seen. >> quickly, rick, we have also learned earlier tod that investigators found more possible parts from the bomb. what's different today than from last night on that? >> well, you know, we know that these crime scene technicians have been on scene on boilston street for days now, collecting evidence, including apparently the lid from a pressure cooker that blew up on to one of the roof
the safeguards around the facilities. i was successful in putting those laws on the books that protect us today. >> all right, sir. thank you. rebuttal? >> that is not what your record indicates, ed. when you look at the port security bill you voted no. when you look at the homeland security bill, i had $158 million in an amendment to fund real security. tonight, we're hearing about threats on rail security coming in from canada, you voted no on that. you voted no for funding for homeland security. some of these votes there are 415 members, both sides are voting yes and you are voting no. >> you mentioned a couple. go ahead mr. markey. >> i am the author of the legislation to mare sure that rail security is more secure in our country. i'm the author of the legislation that moves towards enensuring that chemical plants, for example, are more protected within our country. look it, on our two records, i think we both try our best to work hard. my priorities wound up being the law of the united states in honor to protect the security of our country. >> go ahead. >> you voted no. you voted no on the
background is in the law and, actually, he began his background in law at his family's kitchen table. his father, rex lee, was a law school dean, assistant u.s. attorney general and solicitor general for ronald reagan. senator lee is a graduate of brigham young university and byu law school, was a law clerk for judge dean benson of the u.s. district court of the district of utah and then judge sam alito's clerk when he was at the u.s. court of appeals for the 3rd circuit. he served as an attorney -- assistant u.s. attorney general in utah and general counsel to the governor of utah before turning to private practice. and then in 2010, that important election year, he decided to run united yorking out an -- knocking out an incumbent u.s. senator and a party-endorsed candidate to become the primary candidate and win the general election. senator lee is now on the judiciary committee, serves as ranking member of the antitrust competition policy and consumer rights subcommittee. he also sevens on the armed service -- serves on the armed services committee and the joint economic committee and
,ming. mr. presiden this amendment protects the privacy and sety of law-abiding gun owners. when government officials release gun ownership information it puts many lives at risk. this includes the lives of lawful gun owners, the lived of law enforcement and the lives of ctheic violence. state or local governments that release private gun owner information will be penalized 5% of their federal program funding. this includes the release of private information on individuals 0 who have licenses to purchase or who possess or who carry firearms. the funding that's withheld will then be redistributed to the states that are in compliance. this amendment will ensure that gun owners across the nation do not have their private gun owner information publicly released. thank you, mr. president. and i urge all my colleagues to support the amendment. mr. leahy: mr. president? the presiding officer: the senator from vermont. mr. leahy: this is a case of washington being big brother and telling each one of the states whether it's wyoming, vermont, or connecticut here's what you have to do. we have no idea
way to proceed. i do not believe, under the military commission law, that he is eligible for that. it would be unconstitutional to do that. let me say this, chris. one of the great things about america is that we come together at times of trial. i very much regret the fact that there are those that want to precipitate a debate over whether he's an enemy combatant or whether he is a terrorist, a murderer, et cetera. federal law, we've had 435 terrorist convictions under federal law. we've had 100-plus arrests. there have been maybe half a dozen under the military commission. it is really very clear to me that the course that can be taken -- you've got the high value interrogation group. they're skilled. they know how to do this. the miranda right can be read at a later time. he has reportedly been shot through the throat. he's intubated. he can't talk now. so there is time to do the investigation, to make a clear assessment, and to move from there. so i really regret all of this discussion, which is creating a conflict that need not be there. the administration is ready for this. >
're always a target for terrorists but we believe we have the best law enforcement personnel in the world. >> reporter: you personally coming out here, did you even think about it that d.c. could be dmex? it's happened -- be next? it's happened before. >> i thought about it but i still wanted to help d.c. be recognized. >> reporter: your thoughts on the importance of this event recognizing what took place here in 17862-- >> in 1862. >> this is an exciting time, the emancipation proclamation that we, the citizens of this town, also would like to say we like to abstate one day. >> reporter: i -- be a state one day. >> reporter: i knew we would get that in at some point. no voter representation in the house. are you satisfied on this -- [indiscernible] >> we are encouraged that the president has in fact put the tags on the vehicle, but we certainly would like to see a little more support going forward. >> reporter: talk about living in d.c. the possible danger. did it impact you? has it changed your way of life because of what happened in boston? >> not at all. i have full faith and confiden
me a note if they got a free golf cart. it was the law of the land, if you got one you deserved it. but so abused was that tax provision, mr. speaker, that the nd of 2010 the i.r.s. released tax guidance that said, we wanted you to have to take deliver riff these golf carts before the end of 2010 to get the tax credit, but the demand has been so great the manufacturers cannot do it fast enough, you need a v.i.n. number and you can take delivery in 2011. that's not the way the american tax code ought to be used, mr. speaker. it's not the way american tax dollars ought to be used. there are so many challenges we have in the american economy. and so many reasons that american made products cost more than the products that our competitors produce overseas, and so many of those reasons we do not want to change. the fact that american wages are higher than chinese wages, i want to celebrate that. i tonight want to beknown that. the fact that environmental regulations in america are stricter and protect us in ways that environmental regulations in india do not, do i not want to beknown th
>> is this evident? >>> well more than the evidence is law enforcement and others have said at the federal state and local level and indeed from the region, we have an unprecedented level of law enforcement support and they are working very well. >> what is the process so far that helps you understand maybe for the materials and the level of complementty of the device -- complexity and the origin of the devise? >> i think i know what you are getting at. i can't comment on that aspect of that. what is important to say, what i would like to on behalf of the boston j.t. tf today, they say there is no known threat where we are conducting investigative activity and i want to put that out to the citizens and the city of boston and the commonwealth of massachusetts. >> do you know anything about the nature of device -- [inaudible] >> i am not going to be able to comment on the nature of the device right now. >> are they in custody right now? >> i'm not going to say who or who might not be in custody right now. >> is there one person from ocean avenue that are -- and [inaudible]. >>
, you use a mass shooting to talk about gun safety laws. that's the no-no. that's exploitation. here we can talk about maybe changes to the fbi right away. maybe we should, of course. we can talk about stopping immigration reform. it is really remarkable. and now do you have this growing course of conservatives saying let's load this down. leadership however, is hanging on. boehner yesterday on fox news said it may slow down by a couple of days but immigration reform is something we have to do because they know if they don't do it, they're in trouble demographically. they're going to keep this train rology but you do have those conservatives using it as an opportunity. >> bill: they have a lot of support around the country and the talk radio hosts around the country. they derailed it before. they might be able to do it again. igor volsky here, managing editor of think progress talking about the issues of the day with you. 1-866-55-press. join the conversation. we'll be right back. >> announcer: this is the "bill press show." >> watch the show. >> only on current tv. you know who is comi

and 15 and among those are 3 to 5 firefighters and perhaps one law enforcement officer. houses were blocked around this fertilizer plant. i was in kauffman, county, 60 miles away and we could feel it there. the concussion rattled the windows. we thought it was the approaching storms but it turned out it was much worse than that. it was an explosion that killed several people here in town and perhaps dozens more. mika? >> willie? >> willie geist here. is there any suspension whatsoever of criminal element to this at all? i think the officer who just spoke at the press conference defected that a little bit and hadn't seen any sign of that. is there any suspicion or are they looking into that? >> the officers said they want to treat it as a crime scene until they can rule it out it it wasn't a crime and it was, indeed an industrial accident. in fact, texas has a long history of industrial accidents involving anhydrous ammonia dating 66 years ago on april 16th, 1947, thousands of people were killed in texas city which a ship carrying the same type of fertilizer that blew up here explode
shins occurred 50-100 yards apart and each scene resulted in multiple casualties. >> according to law enforcement the first bomb exploded as the marathon sports running store. the second blast happened a few yards away. authorities believe the explosion shins were caused by small portable devices with ball bearings -- white house is calling the incident and act of terror. he made it clear whoever is responsible will be brought to ju justice. >> we still do not know who did this or why and people shouldn't jump to condition kluges shins before we have all the facts -- conclusions. but make no mistake we will get to the bottom of this and we will find out who did. this we'll find out why they did this. any responsible individuals or groups will feel the full weight of justice. >> now police initially said a third explosion happened at the john f. kennedy library but later said it was related to a fire. also tonight i spoke with a woman who's family recently moved to boston. their 25-year-old son mike johnson was running in the marathon and he was crossing the finish line when the bomb e
has now been arrested. >> i was told by a boston law enforcement source, we've got him. >> bill: we got him john king said and not only that, he even identified -- not identified, he described, he described this mystery man who had been arrested. >> federal law enforcement source says an arrest has been made based on two different videos showing a video of the suspect. a dark-skinned male placing a package at the second explosion site and backing away. >> bill: you know he had to be a dark-skinned man. right? exactly. john king. wrong on both counts. no arrest. no dark skin. no, we got him. no nothing. what they did find is from the video, they have some video from a lord & taylor department store looking across the street at a male who was wearing a big backpack and puts the pack back down and runs away when the first blast is heard up the street. that's giving police some very good leads plus the pieces of the backpack that they found and the pieces of the pressure cooker that they found. and they're working on the case. but the media can't wait. they just can't. and then cnn repo
. but as the colonel said, because of that extraordinary collaboration and cooperation by all of these law enforcement resources and assets and more to the point people, professionals, who brought their "a" game, we have a suspect in custody tonight. >> the community stood strong. it was a call from a resident in watertown. we asked you to remain vigilant, and you did. we got that call and we got the guy. and so we can't thank you enough. you've done everything and more than we've asked. extremely proud of law enforcement today and what we've accomplished. >> this whole ordeal started monday with the bombing attack at the finish line of the boston marathon. three people were killed, more than 170 injured. the suspect's older brother died early friday morning following a shootout with police. the two men are also suspected of killing an m.i.t. police officer, 26-year-old sean collier, who was sitting in his patrol car. now, police hope that the surviving suspect will be able to give them some critical information about a possible motive and whether any more people were involved. nbc's katy tur has been
it into law. that undertaking and many others, john berry made a real difference of the more than 62,000 federal workers and everyone else who called my district home. just as we look to our federal workers to watch out for us, our federal workers look to john to watch out for them, to make sure they have a safe work environment, that their paychecks will arrive on time and the benefits they earn are the ones they receive. under president clinton, john served as deputy assistant secretary and acting assistant secretary for law enforcement at the treasury department. overseeing the united states secret service and the bureau of alcohol, tobacco and firearms. and he later moved to the interior department where he was assistant secretary for policy, management and budget, essentially the manager of the department of interior. before coming to the office of personnel management, john spent nearly a decade working on conservation as director of the fish and wildlife foundation, and then arguably the job he perhaps has enjoyed most, he became director of the national zoo. at the national z
. the hospitals and law enforcement both reporting that there were ball bearings inside this bomb. not some of the other projectiles like nails that you might find in other improvised explosive devices, particularly like those you see in afghanistan. what can the kind of bomb used yesterday tell you about who may have been behind this? >> as a general matter, willie, the type of bomb, the explosives, was this gun powder? was it some higher quality explosive like petn, was it hydrogen peroxide? that will give a load about the type of organizations behind this. the fact there were ball bearings in this is it clearly tells you that whoever did this was intending to maim and kill. this wasn't an attempt to just, you know, do some damage and scare some people. this was someone or a group trying to kill people. you know, beyond that, i think it's really dangerous to say ball bearings suggest domestic or international. the fact is whether it's al qaeda or domestic terrorist groups or hezbollah, all of these groups have used different sorts of motus operenda. it will be a different lead for investi
and terrorist groups. leven said to hold him under these circumstances would be contrary to our laws and jeopardize our effort to prosecute him. during interviews before suspects are read their rights is often not admissible during the trial. the issue on miranda rights is further complicated because the u.s. is a u.s. citizen. many of the rules cannot be used on americans. live in the newsroom, katie utehs. ktvu news. >>> people are in texas are being allowed in their homes. curfew is still in effect and there is limited water and electricity. many are still trying to learn the condition of family and friends hurt in the explosion. >> it's really hectic, but we are patient because we know the extent of damage on the other side. and we got friends and family that we don't know about over there. >> 14 people died in the fertilizer plant explosion, including 11 emergency responders. 200 more were injured. >>> this weekend, texas is also remembering the deadly raid on the branch compound in waco. 76 people died in a fire twenty years ago following a raid on the compound. waco and west
. that is the explosions at the boston marathon. fbi and other members of law enforcement now searching for clues to figure out who is behind monday's deadly bombing. >> three people so far have died. one of them is an eight-year-old boy. will the 140 people injured. we begin coverage with brianne carter live in a satellite center. >> good morning. just getting reports from a tv station in boston that law enforcement officers are searching an apartment in the boston suburb of revere, massachusetts. state police say a search warrant related to the investigation has been served. abc news has officials tracking several persons of interest trying to find out who is behind the blast. tragedy at an american twoition after not one but bombings at the official line. the explosions killed at least three people including an eight- year-old boy. more than 100 are injured. >> i saw quite a few casualties. i saw one guy with his legs gone at the knee. feet missing and shrapnel wounds and people in the sides of the head. not good. >> an arlington resident captured video on camera while sitting in the stands waiting for
found two unexploded bombs. this morning a senior law enforcement official says there were no unexploded devices, just the two that went off. several officials say the bombs that went off included shrapnels to multiply the injuries, bebes and ball bearings. investigators are investigating video to see if they can see individuals placing the packages. there is a video from the back carrying two backpacks but it's too soon to know whether that had anything to do with the attack. authorities say there is no suspect in custody but they did talk last night to a 20-year-old saudi man here on a currently active student visa. he had burns and questioned for hours and it's his home that was searched in the boston suburb of revere. they carried away some materials for examination but one official said it's too certain to know one or the other about him, that he might have been an innocent bystander. >> let's get to michael lighter, nbc news terrorism expert. good morning to you. the key question everyone is waking up with is what is your gut? does this bear the hallmarks of some domestic terrorism
don't have to pay, and diplomatic protections for the egregious violations of law. you can't take it to criminal court, but to the table to negotiate with those who tell you we're the only people, we, the jewish people, with rights in this land. these cold, hard realities of how u.s. policy grievancely harms palestinians are screened from the u.s. public. we bombarded, especially on television, instead, with dishonest rhetoric what is described as progress in a so-called peace process which extensively consistented of negotiations between near equals under the impartial gays of an honest american broker, all supposedly intended to create an independent palestinian state. i'm arguing that this is not what is actually happening. this is not what has happened for 35 years. what has happened is the continuation and the intensification and the reenforcement of the dispersal of the organization and colonization of the pal stippian people and their homeland. the united states, in fact, has never really operated as an honest broker between the palestinians and israel. i never talked to an
